The Spirit Molecule documentary
(75 mins, 2010, written & directed by Mitch Schultz)
After over 40 years of dormancy, a new psychedelic revolution has emerged.
At the nexus of this next-generation mystical revival, lies a molecule naturally produced abundantly throughout the plant and animal kingdoms. Regarded as the world’s most potent psychoactive compound by scientists and psychedelic explorers alike, dimethyltryptamine (or DMT) is also naturally produced in the human brain.
In the early 1990s, Dr. Rick Strassman conducted the first government-sanctioned, human psychedelic research with DMT. Dr. Strassman’s research serves as the narrative backbone for The Spirit Molecule. A documentary described as a psychedelic Baraka meets What the Bleep do We Know, the film presents an intriguing discourse on the science of the soul, and will undoubtedly open Pandora’s Box. By challenging current misconceptions about this class of compounds, The Spirit Molecule unravels fascinating parallels in neurology, quantum physics and human spirituality.
In stylized scenes reminiscent of Rod Sterling’s Twilight Zone bookends, Joe Rogan (Fear Factor), alongside an impressive collection of accomplished minds and a group of Strassman’s own brave psychonauts shepherd the audience through the great unknowns of the DMT experience... revealing the molecule’s ubiquitous nature, its role in our culture, evolution and life itself. Stunning visualizations and highly conceptual imagery intuitively weaves a visual landscape, and a fascinating snapshot of our understanding of consciousness today.
Could Dimethyltryptamine, a simple molecule with a complex name, hold the key to understanding reality, consciousness and our relationship to both?
Many who have experienced DMT profess this, and much more...
